Last night, the ever-persistent James Doakes (Erik King) tracked down Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) to the scene of his latest killing and caught him in the act as he disposed the body of the man who killed his mother.  But as Lundy's (Keith Carradine) task force appeared to be closing in on the Bay Harbor Butcher, Doakes divulged a surprising revelation about Dexter's father Harry (James Remar).

The suspense continues in the 11th episode of Dexter's second season called “Left Turn Ahead,” which is scheduled to air on December 9.

Read on to find out what's in store for this week's episode.

Following Doake's revelation about Harry's past, Dexter's world comes crumbling down.
In “Left Turn Ahead,” Dexter finds himself dodging bullets as he must now make a massive decision that will have an effect on all those he holds close.

Just when Rita (Julie Benz) starts letting Dexter back into her life, Lila (Jaime Murray) comes back with a vengeance.  His relationship with Lila hits another snag when she discovers a secret about him and tries to use it to blackmail him.

Meanwhile, fans have only one more episode of Dexter to look forward to after this week's “Left Turn Ahead” since the psychological thriller is about to conclude its second season on December 16.  On the other hand, supporters of the show can most likely expect the series to return for yet another season.

According to, though there hasn't been an official press release yet, Showtime president Robert Greenblatt has already enthusiastically hinted Dexter's pickup for season 3 during an event hosted by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in California last month.

Despite the pleasant news, Dexter's renewal comes with no surprise given that the acclaimed cable series has continuously surged in the ratings and has even set new records for the network. Thanks to the efforts of avid supporters, Dexter has certainly become America's favorite serial killer.
